This is probably the most important painting for sale on the open market by the artist Joan Warburton (1920-1996), it depicts a still life of a straw hat and garden tools in the artists garden. It is executed in watercolour and is signed and dated 1990. It truly is a stunning work of art. Joan's art is beginning to get the recognition it deserves. I have taken some new photographs which show the painting in natural light In 1937 Joan, enrolled as one of the first students at the now legendary East Anglian School of Painting & Drawing at Dedham, Essex and later relocated to Benton End which was run by Cedric Morris and Lett Haines. Joan exhibited at the Ipswich Art Club in 1941, two works 'Ipswich Docks 1939' and 'Still Life 1941', in 1942 'Newlyn Harbour, Cornwall'. Joan did war work in the WRENS, in an arms factory and with the Red Cross Cross Ambulance Service when she met her future husband. She often stayed at Benton End during her war service, which also took her to London and to Wales. Joan mounted some ten successful solo exhibitions over the following twenty years, with mixed shows at the Royal Academy; Leicester Galleries and Women's International and elsewhere.
